    Is it safe to leave 3ds running a9lh in sleepmode? Cause I read in a thread somewhere that leaving 3ds running on cfw in sleepmode could cause slowdowns. Thanks in advance!

    The worst that happened to me was a "An error has occured" message on the bottom screen which disappeared after a restart. As far as I know it shouldn't cause any serious bugs or slowdowns.

    I put mine in sleepmode all the time and have had no issues at all.

    Sure. But be careful using sleep mode when you have homebrew running, even if you're in the home menu. I closed the lid with FBI running in the background in the home menu and it black screened on me.

    Huh... I usually start installing stuff through FBI or devmenu (Mostly devmenu), close the lid and leave the house while the thing installs.

    Well sleepmode is there for a reason. Why do you think spotpass and streetpass exist?

    I've left mine in sleep mode for over 48 hours and played hyrule warriors legends with no problem after I opened it.
